Update 2018-05-17 Hi folks. Thanks for all the emails and phone calls with well wishes. We appreciate it. As of today we have all the vehicles free and a path cut to the road so we can get out. All of our friends and neighbors are ok. We do not have power, Internet, or mobile data. I am completely cut off from email. Preliminary estimates are that we should have power restored by Sunday. I appreciate your patience as I try to get things organized again. Once utilities are restored I will respond to all email in the order it arrived and update the tool list accordingly. Thanks again everyone. We appreciate your support. --Josh
